The Burglar's Apprentice
30 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Wanting to go out on his own in the second story or cat bugler business apprentice bugler Chris Forrester, Peter Brown, plans to take over his teacher Colin Neal, Barry Nelson's, job as the "One Tiger to a Hill" or neighborhood in the bugler business as well as his girl Diana Weston, Diane McBain,at the same time. The flat footed and not too bright Forrester plans to frame his boss & teacher Coiln Neal by pulling off a number of second story jobs making it look like he did it.

This hair brain plan on Forrester's part backfires when he tries to burglarize an apartment where he's caught red handed with his hand in the cookie jar, or jewelry box, and makes his getaway empty handed. During his escape he shoots and wounds a pursuing police officer putting the rap of attempted murder on his head as well as breaking and entering. It becomes obvious to the cop in charge of the case Let. Wade, James Gregory, that Neal who never carries a gun and uses non violence, as well as always as an alibi, didn't do it. As for Neal he knows who did and plans to give the police, under the table, all the information they need to trap and catch his former student, in the art of crime, Chris Forrester.

****SPOILERS**** Going partners with Let. Wade Neal has Forrester set up when he pulls his latest heist and is quickly, after slugging it out with him, gotten into police custody just before he was about to plug Neal. Neal now a changed man and planning to both marry Diana and get an honest job, as an insurance salesman,shows his gratitude for all that Let. Wade did for him, by not having him busted , that he returns in the US mail the $400,000.00 worth of jewelry he, or Forrester, stole from Mrs. Alicla Wainwright, Linda Burton, that initially brought Let. Wade in on the case.
